LACE MAMBA GLOBAL CONFIRMS UK/IRISH RETAIL RELEASE DATE FOR MEN OF WAR: CONDEMNED HEROES

Brighton, April 04 th, 2012 – Brighton-based publisher Lace Mamba Global today confirms the UK and Irish retail release date of the next instalment in the critically acclaimed RTS series Men of War: The retail version of Men of War: Condemned Heroes is now scheduled to hit the shelves on April 20 th, 2012.

Men of War: Condemned Heroes tells the story of one of the infamous Soviet penal battalions during World War II. These battalions are famous for being formed under Stalin’s “No step back!” order #227. They consisted of court-martialed officers that were given a chance to redeem their crimes, or incompetence, in blood by serving as the lowest enlisted rank in a battalion that was assigned the most dangerous tasks. These battalions’ images are surrounded by many myths, and this game tells the truth about these regiments based on real evidence from their former members.

Take command of one of these notorious companies and lead it to victory against all odds through most of the war on the Eastern front. Fight from desperate battles in 1942 in the area of Volyn in the Ukraine, to the massive operation “Bagration” in the Brest area, Magnush bridgehead and Warsaw area in Poland and finally to attacks on the German Altdamm and Stettin near the end of the war.

Features:

  • Ultimate singleplayer experience – 4 campaigns consisting of 15 missions telling the story of the penal company from crucial 1942 to victorious 1945
  • New ultra-detailed photorealistic human models, faces and uniforms
Lace Mamba Global plans to publish boxed retail versions Men of War: Condemned Heroes in the UK and Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, South Africa, Iceland and further territories, starting in the UK and Ireland on April 20 th, 2012.
